Beautiful Old Town district in which it is ideal to get lost among the narrow streets and where every corner is an amazing panoramic view of Valencia. It is the perfect neighborhood to look for a local where to dine or grab a drink with friends to late at night. To see and experience! @ gargio76

Another great area of Valencia to wander around and get lost. Plenty of bars, restaurants and shops, close enough to the Antiguo Cauce del Rio Turia to escape for some peace and quiet, when you've had enough.

The Barrio del Carmen is a real must in visiting Valencia, there are many restaurants open until 1:00 or 2:00 am, where you can eat the best paellas in town

Lots of interesting looking apartment buildings. Some have been converted to shops and restaurants but I loved the architecture. Something like art deco meets modernism. Plenty of activity going on and it really gets lively at night.

Nice neighborhood where are many of the sights of Valencia. Especially fascinating are the old medieval streets and cathedral. There are many cafes and restaurants.

You absolutely have to walk through all those narrow streets, you won't just discover some lovely coffee places and shops, but also plenty of walls with street art and graffitis! I was impressed how colorful this district was!
